MYRTLE BEACH — Myrtle Beach police documented a customer’s threats to shoot employees of a cellphone business after she was upset with her bill, according to a police report.
Officers were called at 12 p.m. Tuesday by employees of Verizon Wireless at 551 Seaboard St., regarding the threats made by a customer, police said.
An employee told police a month ago the woman spoke to him about the problem with the bill and the employee said he corrected it and credited her account, according to the report. On Monday, the woman returned to the store with a similar issue and got upset, shouted at the employees and threatened to shoot them.
The woman also called the store after she left and again threatened to shoot the employees, according to the report, which did not list specifics about the woman’s issues with her cellphone bill.
The employee told police that they did not want to pursue criminal charges, but wanted the incident documented, according to the report.
